The book lists accommodation along the camino Frances ranging from 'no-cost' to 11 euro.
I sincerely hope the 'no-cost' albergues are not the 'donativo' albergues????
I worked in a 'donativo' albergue and the donations received one day paid for the meals we prepared for pilgrims the following day. They also paid for their tea/coffee, first aid items, electricity, water, cleaning materials etc. 'No-cost' albergues are a misnomer and should not be advertised as such.

Hi John,

Not to disturb your sales efforts, but this was all I needed: ... in_23.html Fantastic useful :!:

You can also download and print for "free" (donativo is my recommended action):

And a route planner (free):

I used the route planner to find appropriate daily distances and elevation differences, then printed and laminated it. It was a big help as well as fun to study along the way over a pint or two :wink: .

I booked a bed at Gite Makila, but they don't offer dinner. As this will be day 0 for me, I wouldn't mind having some company for dinner. Do any of the gites allow people to join their communal...
Ivar probably knows the answer to this. For a few years up until Covid, I much enjoyed the annual update (last one 2019). I assume Covid interrupted it. Anyone know if the author plans to resume...
